 Anglo AmericanIshaq AhmadPrincipal, Decarbonisation Ventures Large Business Other Energy Technologies Decarbonisation Ventures is the corporate venture capital and partnership team of Anglo American.

Anglo American is a leading global mining company whose products (including iron ore) are the essential ingredients in almost every aspect of modern life. Recognising the critical challenge of climate change, Anglo American is delivering a Sustainable Mining Plan that targets a 50% reduction in its Scope 3 emissions by 2040. With a significant proportion of Anglo American’s Scope 3 emissions deriving from the downstream use of iron ore in steelmaking this challenge is one of a range of initiatives the company has started to accelerate the decarbonisation of the steel sector.

The Decarbonisation Ventures team aims to support climate positive innovations through investment and industry collaborations, and is actively looking to support solutions that are innovative, could become cost competitive and will be impactful in decarbonising steel production.

Partner teams we select to work with will have access to a range of internal technical and commercial experts to support them in their scale-up journey. The nature of advice will depend on what the technologies or companies require to meet commercialisation milestones. Beyond its internal expertise Anglo American can also draw on the strength of its global partner and customer network to support ventures’ product development. Our existing work on steel decarbonisation with several global steel producers is a particular avenue that successful applicants may be able to leverage. In addition, all teams can be assessed for potential venture capital investment.

Anglo American has been involved in venturing for about a decade, including founding AP Ventures, co-founding start-ups such as Mission Zero Technologies and Supercritical, and helping grow other cleantech businesses such as First Mode. We know what it takes to be creative and innovative, and how to partner to raise capital.

 Columbia UniversityAlan WestProfessor Academic Other Energy Technologies We are electrochemists, who have developed (through Arpa-E funding) hydrometallurgical means of producing Cu, from iron-containing minerals (chalcopyrite, for example). We are extending to other non-ferrous metals. For Cu, the primary mineral contains Fe, which is a byproduct of our process. At scale, we will produce on the order of 1000 tonnes/day of ferrous ions in an acidic sulfate electrolyte. Currently, it is a waste product , and electrowinning is one means of disposal that we are exploring. We would be happy to support a project that might view our feedstock as a demonstration of their innovations. Given the nature of the feedstock (waste from Cu processing), there is an excellent chance of being net zero, depending on the LCA boundaries. Our envisioned contributions would be 1) to develop separations that might be required to achieve electrowinning, given the unique characteristics of our electrolyte, and 2) work towards integration with our work.

 Hydrobe Pty LtdDuncan AndersonChair Small Business Bioenergy Hydrobe technology converts flue gas stream with CO2 into green energy products (fertilizer, hydrogen, alcohols). The core technology extracts sugars from algal biomass using bacterial reactors to produce hydrogen and other products without requiring heat or pressure. The result is an energy light, scalable biological process that efficiently releases sugars from biomass for conversion to green energy products.

The system generates in excess of 117 Kg of hydrogen for every 1 tonne of biomass. Post processing, the residual biomass is rich in carbon and cellulose free. Therefore, it may be viable as a metallurgical coal substitute.

The core discovery enabled a material change to photobioreactor design. The combination of green hydrogen, as a carbon offset or energy source, and the scale of biomass demand it generated resulted in carbon fixation productivity rates in excess of 8g/l/d requiring a fraction of the footprint of any other known algal production solution.

By recycling CO2 into new energy products, the system not only fixes carbon from a flue gas stream, it eliminates carbon that would otherwise have been generated in the production of those new energy products. The integrated system is a decarbonization solution designed to generate a return on investment.

We are at TRL 5. The science is proven. Until this point, all work has been done at lab scale. The process of building a larger scale integrated system for demonstration has commenced.

We are seeking steel industry customers interested to work with us on the path to commercial deployment of the technology.

Hydrobe Pty Ltd is an Australian company. However, our core markets will be with industrial emitters in the USA, East Asia, and Western Europe. Our primary operations base will likely be in the USA.

 University of Wisconsin-MadisonLuca MastropasquaDr. Academic Other Energy Technologies Dr. Mastropasqua directs the Hydrogen and Electrochemical Research for Decarbonization (HERD) Lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UW-Madison. Our research focuses on electrochemical energy conversion devices and systems for decarbonized and zero emission power generation, energy storage, and industrial manufacturing applications. We characterize and explore the fundamental physical and chemical processes of electrochemistry and thermodynamics to discover new concepts, advance new devices, conceptualize novel process integration, and scale-up systems to final applications. We have experience in applying electrochemical processes to produce reducing streams for ironmaking decarbonization, as well as for carbon capture and storage.
We primarily study solid state, molten carbonates, and composite electrolyte membranes (i.e., oxygen anion, protonic, and carbonate ion conductors), perovskite porous electrodes and composite ceramic/metal structures for electrochemical reactions. We investigate materials degradation phenomena and design diagnostic protocols to identify testing regimes that allow for a more reliable operation of devices and systems. Through collaborations, we develop manufacturing processes to scale-up new devices and reach commercially relevant sizes. High temperature electrochemical integration allows for synergistic coupling of industrial manufacturing activities, use of waste heat, and production of synthetic fuels and industrial products. Therefore, we perform thermodynamic and electrochemical modelling of such systems to design and optimize process integration.
We aim at being involved in direct electrochemical reduction of iron ore to metallic iron and demonstrating durability of electrodes in protonic and/or mixed conductor cells.
